Bridgewater-Raynham Regional School District Reviews
Rating 3.64 out of 5 50 reviews
I loved attending sporting events and other fundraising events. I felt well prepared for college and appreciated all of the staff members at BR.
I spent four years at Bridgewater-Raynham as a full time student. I truly did enjoy every my High School years, however I do believe everything has room for change. For instance, I think they could have prepared us for college better if we were provided with a home economics class, to teach us the basics of living on our own. I felt as though the academics were well taught and definitely prepared us for college courses, yet there was lots more I could have been prepared for when it comes to paying loans, living on my own, paying taxes, and much much more.
I've had a great elementary, Middle and High School experience. Guidance counselors have greatly helped in HS with college/career prep.
I enjoy Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School a lot since I moved here my sophomore year. I thought that the building was very clean, and it was lovely. I liked the teachers that I met, they taught me well. I liked everything that lead up to my senior year. However, now that I am a senior, I realized that I needed a lot of help from the guidance department. I went to my guidance counselor for help, but I don't find her very helpful. So, I guess the only thing I would say about Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School that was bad would be that department. I went through the college process pretty much by myself and it was not a good experience.
Since natural disaster tore down the elementary school building (during February vacation, no one was hurt), the new high school has been over stuffed with eighth graders and have disrupted the district a little. Otherwise the district is open to public opinion and very cordial.
Overall, Bridgewater-Raynham Regional School District is extremely driven and determined to help your child succeed. For the most part, the faculty are nice and are willing to do whatever it takes to help their student better their academics.
For a public school education, Bridgewater offers an incredible variety of classes. Because of this, I have discovered that I want to enter the field of engineering. Deciding what you want to do for the rest of your life at 17 is incredibly hard and while I do not have a definite path laid out, BRRSD has given me a direction.
I think my high school experience overall is okay. The education is good I feel like I learn a lot from my teachers. The social aspect of school is a little bit of a roller coaster ride, but I get through because that's what high school is about finding who you are and who your real friends are. My teachers through the years have been nice and respected me. The school is well put together landscape wise of the classrooms. I do enjoy going to my high school.
As an Alum, I am not sure whether I would attend BR again if I had the chance. First of all, there was no drive to help students with after college. It felt as if they had some, but there was little advertisement or push to help students find a major. Favoritism within the administration was high, as I felt like an outcast because I was unable to participate in school activities. I was always on my toes as if I would get in trouble. But the teachers were great and there was a diverse set of classes to take.
The rules are inconsistent with teachers and administration. To much vaping and teachers overlooking the vaping. Good athletics. Some very good teachers other are terrible. The bio department is absolute trash and about half of the math teachers aren't so hot either.
I’ve been in the district my whole life and have only had a handful of great teachers. Some teachers have helped me grow and learn great skills and deserve rewards, others have very little teaching ability and is wasting many children’s time. Teaching children how to properly write is horrible and do not prepare you for the high school and soon college world of writing papers.
Most of my experience was ok. My only complaint would be when reaching out to teachers for help, that you got it. Overall my experience was pretty good there.
My high school experience was amazing. I enjoyed the environment and how it was constantly filled with positivity. I feel as though my high school prepared me for college and basically the real world. The things I would change would definitely be the food, it was pretty gross to say the least. But overall I loved my High school.
Bridgewater Raynham is a very simple minded school where most people follow the same ideals. It's difficult to go there and not follow what everyone else is doing just to fit in and do what is percieved as fun. Academically you can get by if you take challenging classes and possibly put in the work to teach yourself a few things if your teacher os lacking. A very American-proud environtment.
The academics could have been better. I felt the student: teacher ratio was overwhelming and kids like myself whom struggled with math fell through the cracks.
Bridgewater -Raynham High School has been a very interesting experience for me. As someone who has always performed well in school, I was enthusiastic about participating in the AP science classes they offered at BR. The AP teachers were excellent and prepared us for the AP exams at the end of the year. I found that far too many students and staff members would undermine and stereotype the smart hard working students but I guess one can assume that would happen at any school. The sports team was quite competitive, during my time at the school, I participated in the girls soccer team and girls track team where I competed in the 100 meter hurdle race. Being a division 1 high school, I found that I was an average athletic player and the opponent schools we faced were always just as competitive.
Bridgewater-Raynham did the best with what they had and provided a solid education to their students. That being said, there are definitely areas where the district is lacking. For example, I believe that there could have been more support available to the students, in terms of guidance counselors being more involved in helping students apply to college, more emotional support/less stigma surrounding mental illness, etc. Also, I feel that the district definitely tried to teach students about social issues and current events, but could have better provided that information. Overall, my education was a good experience, but it could definitely have improved.
